The course has two aims: to cover basic research methods and to give the students the opportunity to write and present a literature review associated with their summer project. In this course, the students will learn about scientific methodology, research ethics, statistics and hypothesis testing, the structure of a scientific paper and oral presentation issues. The course has strong seminar character, that is, regular attendance (beyond the 70% minimum requirement imposed by College) and active participation in class are highly encouraged.
See the syllabus page for the general course structure.
This course is exclusively for students of the MSc Computer Graphics, Vision & Imaging programme, for students of MRes Virtual Reality, and for EngD students of the EngD VEIV programme.
The assessment will be based on two course works, a written literature review and a final presentation. See here for more information.
There is no dedicated text book. Proposed additional readings are provided on the syllabus page.
